Here are links to some resources you might want to use when thinking about your child’s (and your) learning style.
Our 1:1 meetings will continue next week. We are spending time connecting and discussing plans and needs. For those of you who did not attend our group meeting yesterday, I have information to share with you about Workshops on Wednesdays, Thursday Expeditions, clubs, our lending library, work journals and more. As part of this process, please take time to explore the resources and links on this website. While it is a work in progress, you will find many helpful items.
Speaking of work journals, you can find them all on the DV Connect Parent Educator Resource Site. On that page, you will also find a checklist and FAQs, including examples of daily learning log entries. Please remember to use the Collaborative work journal. This Resource Site is a treasure trove and worth taking some time to dive into. Learning Goals can be found on our class website. I am still uploading additional resources. If you need something you don’t see, please let me know.
I hope that you are all going to have your child(ren) take part in our Workshops on Wednesdays. We will be Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Leonardo da Vinci. Our mornings will focus on life during the Renaissance and observational drawing. Our afternoons will be spent exploring patterns and experimenting with light and water. Please sign up here and if your child is not able to attend for the full workshop day, email me with details.
Sign-ups for our next two Thursday Expeditions are available. Please RSVP (see embedded links, below):
- Mural Painting and Time for Parent Collaboration – Thursday, Aug. 23rd 10:00-11:30. Jennifer and I will work with students to create a moveable mural to beautify the area outside the door of our home base. Parents are invited to use this time to meet and collaborate together.
- El Dorado Nature Center and Hike – Thursday, Aug. 30th 10:00-1:00. We will visit the nature center and then choose between 3 hike options around the lakes and forested areas. We will all bring our lunch and enjoy a scenic picnic together.
Would you like to have some additional time to chat this month? You can sign up for an open 1:1 meeting slot here or for an office hours appointment here.
